Albert King: As The Years Go Passing By

Wednesday, August 11, 2010


Hey folks, I'll be DJ'ing at the 92nd Street Y Tribeca Branch this Saturday night (August 14, circa 10 PM), along with a lot of other great entertainers, as part of a two-day Harry Nilsson festival. Come down to witness a true uninhibited mass expression of Nilssonophilia in a judgement-free environment. The gladdest experience you'll ever know? Solid deets here.

PLEASE NOTE: if anyone has any suggestions for any cool Nilsson or Nilssonesque music for me to play at this event, by all means submit a comment below!
